Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell, who is reportedly a target for Spurs, (Daily Mail) has confidently declared that he believes that he could one day play for a top-six club in the Premier League.

Cantwell’s performances have been one of the few shining lights for Norwich amidst a poor season so far.

The Canaries find themselves rooted to the bottom of the table and are seven points off safety but that has not stopped Cantwell’s attacking quality from shining through.

The Daily Mail reported last month that Spurs were monitoring the 21-year-old who is said to be valued at £30million by Norwich. It is suggested that Manchester City also hold an interest in the 21-year-old.

Speaking to The Mail, the youngster has now admitted that he believes he can reach the very top but did admit that he has a few things to work on.

When asked if he can play for a ‘big-six club’, Cantwell said: “With development and improvement, I could definitely get to that position. But it touches a little bit on self-confidence.

“If you don’t believe that then there’s no real point in starting out in the first place. You’ve really got to believe that you can get to the highest point. If you don’t, who will?

“I’m learning. Things aren’t always going to be perfect. I’m going to make mistakes, I can assure you of that. But I genuinely feel like I’m becoming a better player.”

Spurs Web Opinion

While Cantwell’s talent is obvious, I am yet to be convinced that he can reach the level of someone like Jack Grealish. He is still pretty wasteful and often dwells on the ball for far too long. However, he is still very young and has a lot of time to improve.
